In the realm of Thought Police

I DO not condone, or agree with, the comments made by Andy Gray and Richard Keys, but are we not entering the realms of the Thought Police when experts are fired not for anything related to their work, but for what words they use off-air - even if these are not seriously held?

The recording sounds to me like banter between the men, using the commonly-held belief that it is usually a waste of time trying to tell a woman about the offside law, simply because she just doesn't care and doesn't want to know.

I tried to explain this to my wife this morning, but she was just not interested. Does this mean I will now lose my job?
